rooted us

*You* are striving to create a more liberated world for all people, practicing collaborative and intentional community, engaged in anti-oppression work, engaged in grassroots work, excited to learn new things, ready to share a workshop or game or doodle or snacks, and can handle basic agreements to do things like caretake each other and the space.

*We* are a couple of collaborators working for children’s rights and education nonprofits (Friends of the Modern School and Agile Learning Center) who felt a whole bunch of awe and potential among our networks of inspiring change-makers sooo we picked some dates and rented a space. We’re not sure what it’ll look like, only that it’ll be as awesome as you are. 💜🖤

*UPDATE* We have more Proposed Offerings than we can schedule without turning this into…well…a conference, so we closed the “Proposals” form. From academic-y to fantastic, the offerings on the schedule already have us really excited. And there are intentional blocks of open space in the schedule, for those with day-of offerings who want to schedule them in the space or invite folks to gather nearby in Tompkins Square Park.

free, volunteer-run & hands-on unconference

Come join us in New York City, over the weekend of June 21-23, 2019 for an unconference focusing on practical application of anti-oppressive community building. There will be no admission charge and the entire unconference is being run by volunteers. Register and find out how you can help out.

Friday, June 21:

Check out radical spaces around the city!

We’re excited to share offerings from:
* Agile Learning Center
* Brooklyn Apple Academy
* Interference Archive
* Smiling Hogshead Ranch

Saturday, June 22  +  Sunday, June 23:

Join us at the Sixth Street Community Center to co-create an unconference!

Offerings so far include:
* The Modern School and Anarchist Pedagogies
* Self-Directed Education for Liberation
* Tech tools for organizing
* Theater! And other games
* Tarot
* and more!

If you’re new to the concept, unconferences are structured to provide opportunity for all participants to have a voice in a flat organizational gathering, as opposed to the typical hierarchical top-down structure of a conventional conference (see Wikipedia for more!)


Proposal Application

We have taken down the proposal application form. There will be the opportunity to propose further workshops and talks at the event itself. And so, please feel free to attend and come with ideas to present. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us
